Car shutting off at quick turn

Hi guys,
So this has been happening to me for quite a while, but recently it started happening more often. Once in a while, when I make a quick turn, the car just shuts off. This morning, when I was coming to a red light, I put the car in neutral, let go of the gas pedal and the car just shuts off. Car shutting off at quick turns has happened many times, but shutting off when I let go of the gas pedal happened only today. Anybody knows why?
Thanks

Is your idle really low?

Re: Car shutting off at quick turn

I don't want to assume, but are you driving a manual or auto?

Why not leave it in a lower gear when taking the corner (if manual)

Re: Car shutting off at quick turn

is it the engine dying or the whole car? could be your fuel pump not sitting proper, then not getting any gas into it?

Re: Car shutting off at quick turn

My idle is at 700 rpm. I drive a manual. When taking a turn, i usually push in the clutch or put it in neutral, then put it in second or third gear during or after the turn. And just the engine dies, everything else still has power. I might have to check the fuel system or do the compression test like you guys said.

Re: Car shutting off at quick turn

Thanks for the replies. And I am having code p0420 by the way. Not sure if it has anything to do with this problem. Moreover, when I drive on the freeway, the car kind of hesitates. It feels like the clutch is slipping, but that is hardly possible because I just got it replaced a month ago. Any ideas?

Re: Car shutting off at quick turn

Car is going to hesitate with a cel on. the ecu is in limp mode. This cel usually means you need a new catalytic converter (or if you are running after market exhaust components you need to trick the ecu.) Replacing the o2 sensors will NOT fix this cel. I had the same code after I installed my exhaust (i have 2.5in straight though test pipe resonator and muffler) To fix the issue I used the Weapon R CEL Eliminator (which is just a secondary o2 sensor relocation) and I have not had a CEL since.

Re: Car shutting off at quick turn

I have the same Cel on my prelude as well I tried tricking the ecu by moving the O2 sensor further back from the pipe but it didn't work. I may try that weapon R eliminator s13carr got...
